Traveling With Young Kids Is Like Swimming With A Cat

Traveling with young kids is like swimming with a cat . . . but it doesn’t have to be!


I might be certifiably insane or just plain stupid. Hmm, maybe a bit of both. I know my friends all thought so this past June. I decided to take the kids on a cross-country road trip for the whole month of June. By myself! Yep, my last marble must have rolled away when I came up with that idea. Continue reading

Motherhood can sometimes be messy, bladder control issues included. But, none of that has to keep you from feeling beautiful each day. Keep these post-baby essentials on hand to help you maintain beauty and confidence all day long.


You know those nightmares you had when you were a teenager (okay, maybe even as an adult), when you were caught with your pants down and you were desperately scrambling to get pants on? Never in my life did I imagine I would experience something like that in real life.

I’m totally, 100%, scout’s honor serious!

If you were driving the highway between Arizona and California last month and saw the bare butt of an almost 30-year old woman on the side of the road, I confess, that was me. I can’t believe I’m actually telling this story, and I’m trying so hard to not guffaw at myself right now.

I peed my pants.

While driving.

In the middle of nowhere.

Ya’ll, this is what Continue reading

Mommy Can Be Selfish Too

Sometimes mommy wants to be just a little bit selfish too.


I remember it like it was yesterday. My oldest was not even two years old and I was largely pregnant with our second. I had made some puppy chow and so badly wanted to eat some. But, I didn’t want my son to see me, because he had just had a small bowlful. So, I waited until he was playing with some toys and quickly sneaked into the kitchen.

I swear, it doesn’t matter how quiet you are, Continue reading

Every Mom Needs To Do This


There’s something that seems to happen among all women both before we have kids and shortly after. I will admit that I too was very guilty of this before kids and in the beginning of my motherhood. Though I might never had said anything out loud, my mind and heart criticized some moms.

I would NEVER let my child make a mess in my car.

Somebody needs to teach that child a lesson. Throwing tantrums on the floor of the grocery store? Unacceptable. My child would never do that!

*gasp* Did she seriously just let her son have goldfish for breakfast?!

Come on, admit it, you did it too. Or maybe you even do it now! The thing is, until we’ve been there, we need to Continue reading

5 Questions You Should Never Ask Parents

After we started having children, my husband and I couldn’t believe some of the crazy and, to be honest, “none of your business” kinds of questions that we would get asked. I know a lot of people, especially random strangers, are just reaching for conversation starters. But, when these questions come from family or people we know, we find ourselves not knowing how to answer. We have three boys and are expecting a baby girl. It’s been crazy the things we’ve been asked or told. Evan and I have come up with the top 5 questions we’ve been asked, starting with the most common one. I then give my snarky responses to said questions followed by my thoughts.
